How to make a Christmas card with hand carved stamps
One of my friends asked me how I stamped on Miyu's shirt.
So today I show you how to make a Christmas card with stamps in the way of it.
At first I made a stamp with a small piece of eraser. I drew a design of simple flowers.
Then I scratched it on a piece of eraser, the rest of my works.
I use this OLFA cutter knife only.
I began cut off the outlines roughly.
I began carving from the outlines. Note the angle of the knife.
It should be in a trapezoidal shape when you see it from the side. It makes the stamps durable.
In the case of this design, I carved in a round shape at first.
Then I cut off the petals.
It's easy to cut off the center circle. Fix the knife at the center and just turn around the eraser.
I finished carving.
Then I prepared the patterns for the card. I drew the design of Christmas socks and tree.
I cut off the parts. Please take care to keep the outsite patterns.
I put it on a card and just stamped.
These are the monotone ones.
And multicolor ones.
And with other stamps.
I hope you liked this article and try carving stamps (* v *)!!!!
See you soon!!
